  1. I'm sorry but to all those who believe that TF:Prime is a more mature series/toy aesthetic than TF:A - Hasbro has ruined that argument. If you haven't seen the new Beast Hunters commercial where a toy Prime is fighting a toy Predaking - it's a riot, like a cutesy Super Hero Squad-type riot, complete with "boing"s and other kiddie sound effects. I kind of liked it because I'm a fan of Toy Story and stuff like that, but they really are NOT aiming for sophistication with that commercial!!! :D

  2. Right there with you - some of the most emotionally real TF storytelling out there.

     

    I miss TF:A regularly because it was so good. There are numerous moments in the series that are pivotal.

     

    How about when Yoketron gives up his chance for life and the way that Prowl deals with that then and

    all the way through the last episode, when he sacrifices himself? Just good stuff.

     

    I have tons of moments from the original series, and it'll always be my number one, but Animated will

    always be a close second for me.

  3. Is it possible that they've actually reached a deal to release these episodes on DVD since they're showing them on the HUB? I've been out of touch with the forum for a while, so

    maybe I missed a prior discussion - but does anyone have any perspective on this?

  4. Ha! I literally just got legends ravage last night. He´s a fun toy and has good posability for a legends size figure. I have mine next to my legends Scorponok ATM. they look cool together

     

    I think legends Scorponok suffers from GPS on his tail lance. Mine's crumbling. But I do still like him and Ravage.

  5. Trying to organize a TF meet up in Maryland. Trying to get the folks between Baltimore and DC together.

    If you're interested in meet up, getting some lunch and maybe do some selling and trading, check the link here:

    My link

     

    Hotspot---saw your post over at TFW---I'm on the Eastern Shore---I'm considering joining you guys on the 22nd, but don't know my schedule and availability yet

  6.  

    Also, did anyone else see the Target 2 packs?

     

    I know there was a thread about BB a week ago, but there were more figures.

    Sideswive vs Baricade

    Ice Cream Twins vs Sideways

    BB vs another repaint of Break Away.

     

    I passed on them, but the sets were pretty nice, somehow the garrish colors worked. Plus they were at a fair $19.99 price :thumb

     

     

    I kind of thought most of them were hideous (especially Barricade), so I passed

  7. WFC Bumblebee---like the figure except for his slight hump-back-edness or dumptyism (whichever you prefer!); love the weapons; slightly less enamored with the open hands and slightly gangly limbs; wish the alt was more like his G1 Pre-Earth mode, but enjoy his Tron-iness and fun transformation---7/10

     

    WFC Prime---like the alt mode and transformation a lot-very intricate; not a fan of his big ears and small overall size-wish he was a voyager (Bumblebee's head seems to be twice the size of Prime's); wish the weapon pegged like the directions say without coming unhooked; wish he was more like the 6" Titaniums in design of both robot and alt; I really enjoy the WFC aesthetic on his alt (and Bumblebee's) for its own merit---7/10

     

    OTFCC Punch/Counterpunch---I love him a lot! Wish the head(s) was larger and wish they had figured out a way to do 2 sided hands---9/10

  8. Someday I'll get a Brave Maximus---I love the pose. :love I would absolutely buy a print of the artwork you posted if it was available. I'm going to check out the fortress maximus website next.

  9. Great find, be very very careful of the gold plastic!!!

    The stuff they used for gold and brown in the 90s is super brittle.

     

    I can attest to that. Mine's waist has crumbled. Do you suppose there's anyone out there who has copied and molded this waist piece? I'd pay for a reproduction/replacement.

  10. Again, Ersico---truly great poses. There are a lot of guys around here who bust on Animated, but your pictures prove that for posability, Animated can't be beat. I'll be adding some stuff later---definitely to Liege's crazy poses thread and maybe to this one too.

     

    Nice job---by the way, are those swords actually metal?

  11. Yea, Landfill is cool.

     

    But (Target Exclusive) Universe Devastator is MUCH cooler!

     

     

    I've never taken him out of the boxes----based on your pic, I will be taking him out soon. Nice!

  12. I'm gonna go tomorrow, Wouldn't mind a Megatron for the MIB collection, and who knows, maybe I can find a RB Magnus(but I doubt it)

     

    If you DO find Roadbuster Magnus and he happens to have a shelf mate, buy em both and I'll buy him off of you. Heck, I'll even buy that Hotshot off of you if you haven't sold him yet. Thanks again for your suggestions in the other thread

  13. Whew. I should of slapped my hand today. :lol

     

    Here's my haul;

     

    TRU.Com :

    Metal Sonic JUVI

    ROTF DlX Sideways (regular, I hope.)

    ROTF Voyager Optimus Prime

     

    Kohls:

    Breakaway (Japanese Variant)

    Sideways (Japanese Variant)

    2 Bakugan things(No clue the names..Should probably take 'em out of the bag to find out...)

    Sonic Riders Zero Gravity

    TF building cards

    another Bakugan thinger, and a shelf.

     

    Pics to be edited in soon.

     

     

    Love buying TF stuff at Kohl's---I know it can be more expensive, but sometimes you can catch a good sale and it just feels good to find stuff there, since it doesn't seem like you should be able to.

  14. I had to take some pics of this since it took a while to set up.

     

    It's a Transformers Animated Battle!

     

    01fullbattle.jpg

     

    The obvious match up first

     

    02leaders.jpg

     

    Bulkhead and Bumblebee triumph over Oil Slick

     

    03bulkbumboil.jpg

     

    Wasp confuses Goldbug for Bumblebee

     

    04goldbugwasp.jpg

    (note: Goldbug is obviously Elite Guard Bumblebee with a battle mask from Reprolables.com)

     

    Shockwave triumphs over the Dinobots (my favorite set up)

     

    05shockwavewins.jpg

     

    Prowl in armor fights Blackarachnia while Swindle takes a cheap shot from afar at Bumblebee.

     

    06morefighting.jpg

     

    Seekers take on the head of the Elite Guard

     

    07seekersvsguard.jpg

     

    Soundwave shows he can go toe-to-toe with Jazz while Laserbeak is keeping Sentinel busy.

     

    08morefighting2.jpg

     

    Ratchet might have to deal with Lugnut and Atomic on his own, because Wreck-Gar seems to be reciting Shakespeare

     

    09alaspooryorik.jpg

     

    Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for looking.

     

    Everything there rocks! They look great---
